That’s what the gasping throes of modern conservatism has left in the tank. That’s what they’ve got. Twenty years.
Don’t be afraid by Michelle Malkin claiming two million people showed up: the police estimates are thirty thousand plus. (Besides, we already know what two million people on the Mall looks like.)
In twenty years, the majority of these stupid old white people – and it’s mostly stupid old white people, and where it isn’t all three it’s just about always two out of three – will be dead or senile (or more senile than they are now). The kids aren’t voting Republican, and they’re not voting Republican in massive numbers because it turns out the kids, while not perfect, generally disapprove of instititional racism, homophobia and sexism.
It’s the last gasp of insanity. So chill, everybody. The next couple of years might suck, but even in the worst case scenario there is simply no chance in hell that a Republican is elected President in 2012. No. Chance. In. Hell. If anybody wants to bet me money on this I will take any wager.
